Bernardo Barros, Henrique Iwao & Mario Del Nunzio - Musica Eletronica 2004 (ca294)
- Publication date
Nec Spe Nec Metu, by Del Nunzio, ìwithout hope nor fearî, begins the exploration of digital noises and ìextended electronic techniquesî, also with a dynamic and tense gestural quality, and a will to give a notion of corporeality to the music. The piece uses many non-conventional compositional procedures, such as the creation of digital flaws by the consecutive application of a great quantity of sound processes with opposite functions. In a very different way, this intention of a physicality is also present in some other pieces here presented, such as in Escrito com o Corpo (Written with the Body), by Barros, in which the ultra-low sounds, perceived or not, may proportionate the opportunity to "let the stomach vibrate".
Back from Europe, after being in contact with the german breakbeat, Barros composed Frankfurt, Frankfurt, taking rhythmical and timbrical elements from the pop culture. The piece has a homogeneous material and intends to develop a significant musical structure, through tempo variations and density control. Meanwhile, Del Nunzio, in his Improviso em Branco & Preto (Carta as Videntes), uses samples from many different sources (mainly from percussion excerpts of works by contemporary composers, and drum solos by rock drummers), with its intrinsic gersturality, having the specificities of the samples conducting in an almost improvisatory way the development of the piece. Anyway, there is a perceptible thematic proximity of both pieces.
The pieces by Iwao here presented have some of the characteristics which define his actuation as a composer (at least during this period), such as: an attention to the pre-compositional formal plans, rigorously; the way he deals with layers, sculpted during the realization of the piece; a certain obsessiveness. In the laborious Estudo para um Instante Vazio, the imperfections of an extensive and problematic technically manual work constitute the main body of the piece, being such characteristics on one hand determined by the chosen technique for the sound generation (synthesis by graphical representation) and, on the other hand, by one practical result of this technique (appearance of clicks - and the compositional option of accepting these clicks). The sections and materials used in the piece are pre-defined abstractly and treated with maximum rigidity a avoiding, thus, any didatism (meaning a direct induced correspondence between the compositional plans and an intended comprehension of the music).
